Many contribute to this blog, they have my sincerest thanks, while many more simply read either on a search engine basis or as more-or-less regulars — my thanks to them, as well.

Historians, pilots, artists and editors add immeasurable richness to the work — improving my game — helping to enhance the overall purpose of this blog recalling aviation’s history, helping folks to get to where it is and giving a cheer to those who help to preserve it. I am forever and humbly grateful to them.

    “DYNAMITE” IMAGES!! Joe…… plus….it was my birthday…..these inspired me to look up origin of fireworks in the USA….and I quote…

    “Settlers brought fireworks over to the Americas around the 1600s, where they continued to be used to celebrate special occasions. The very first 4th of July celebration was in 1777, only one year after the signing of the Declaration of Independence. The United States was still in the midst of the Revolutionary War and the outcome was still uncertain, but beautiful displays of fireworks instilled a sense of hope and patriotism in the citizens of the young nation.”

    Like Aviation, another obvious addition of worth to the freedoms and privileges we enjoy……

      Yes! We do like things that go BOOM! I had no idea we were using fireworks so early in the USA, thanks for that. Also, look up the types of fireworks in Wikipedia — a great variety to see there as well as what compound is used for which color. And, last but not least, Happy Birthday!
